I made this page to keep track of my firefox extensions, until an export exentions solution came along. This seems to be the case with FEBE and CLEO – two extensions that will let you export/backup your extensions (FEBE) and even package your extensions in .xpi files for easy sharing with others (CLEO).
To answer your question: Yes. It seems to work! I now have 30 backed up extensions in .xpi files on my harddrive – and I have packaged 12 of my favourite plugins for you to try out: 12 Firefox Extensions (1,8 MB .xpi-file)
Still, I have grown a certain fondness of (my still incomplete) list of favourite plugins. So here they are:
IE view – opens page in IE.
View in Firefox – the other way round.
IE Tab – opens tab as IE.
Tabbrowser preferences – enhances tabbed browsing.
Web Developer Toolbar – for the technical approach to browsing.
MeasureIt – pull-out ruler.
ColorZilla – Eyedropper/ColorPicker.
Copy Plain Text – strips formatting from web text.
Copy Links – copies all links on the page to the clipboard.
Ohh – took a screendump of the most important extensions I use at work. I’ll update the list above soonish…
Below the screendump you’ll find a complete list of all the extensions – generated by Firefox extension dumper
